the best defense is a good offense. that's what the president was doing today. challenging his opponents to come up with a better system. from the beginning of the healthcare debate talking points suggested that congress pass limited targeted laws to address unfairness in the system. things like allowing healthcare insurance companies to compete nationwide the increased competition would drive down costs things like free healthcare clinics for the uninsured where he they could just walk in and get whatever help they needed. but president obama didn't want that he wanted income redistribution along with healthcare access. and the only way to do that, to take money from the haves and give it to the have notes is to impose a government-run healthcare system and that's what we have. the feds dictate the coverage, the cost, and the sign-up plans. the problem is many working americans will have to pay more and some doctors will not participate. the end result, the economy gets hurt, doctors become harder to see. mr. obama didn't address either of those things today and they are crucial in the
